The Sleeper SEALs, are former U.S. Navy SEALs recruited by a new CIA counter-terror division to handle solo dark ops missions to combat terrorism on U.S. soil.
Logan (Preacher) Bishop, retired Navy SEAL, flew tourists on helicopter rides over the mountains of Montana and occasionally rescued skiers from snowy slopes. With the threat of terrorists developing means of biological warfare, he jumped at the chance to run a mission in Alaska, monitoring the activities of a newly established ISIS cell.
Vivian Sanders, a biologist with the Department of Homeland Security, was tasked with finding out what the terrorists were creating. Assigned to work with an agent on a cell in Alaska, she was stunned to find she was being paired with a security specialist and he knew nothing about their cover—living next door to the terrorists and pretending to be married.
Precise in his planning and executions of missions, the impulsive Viv drove Logan to distraction and of all his missions, he was certain this one would fail. Learning to work together, Logan and Viv discover opposites do attract. But the secret Logan carries—how he is to finish the mission—is one he is afraid she won't be able to accept.
When the chemicals created by the terrorists next door threatened to be tested on a small town in Alaska, they fight to survive…both hoping their love survives the battle as well.
** Logan Bishop was first introduced in the Saints Protection & Investigation Series (Surviving Love). This book is in the "Sleeper SEAL" connected series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
Each book in this multi-author branded series is a standalone novel, and the series does not have to be read in order.
****Due to scenes of an explicit sexual nature and language that some consider crude, please be warned - for 18+ only! If you do not like alphas with heart who fall in love with strong female characters while dealing with real life issues...again be warned!!*****
I love the strong and independent characters. Their stories always leave you wanting more. When the stories end I feel sad that I can no longer be in their lives. I want to know more about how their lives are continuing.
Ever been in a situation that wasn’t to your liking? That’s what Logan was thrown into when he accepted the job in Alaska.
Playing married with Vivian was not his idea of what a retired Navy Seal loner should do.
Surprises abound in this romantic thriller until the end.
Another must read from Maryann.
Preacher and Vivian
Vivian Sanders is a bioterrorism scientist who has been recruited to assist in determining what a group of homegrown terrorists are cooking up. She's grown bored with sitting at a desk all day and wants to try her hand at field work. Due to her Alaskan ethnicity and education, she was chosen to assist Preacher with his investigation in Alaska. She's been told that she's to pretend she and Preacher are a newly married couple. She just wished Preacher was informed!
Preacher, discharged due to injury, lives the quiet life in Montana. Preacher flies tourists in his helicopter to view the beautiful landscapes of Montana. He also plans missions, but no longer participates in them. He's approached by a former Commander to plan and execute an op to exterminate a homegrown terrorist group in Alaska. Preacher arrives in Alaska assuming the scientist he'll be working with is male. He darn sure didn't know part of his cover was based on pretending to be married to the beautiful Viv Sanders. She's impulsive, not trained, and now his "wife". As they work together to eradicate danger, they find they really like each other. Deciding to live in the moment, they begin an affair with a likely "end date". Preacher knows Viv will go running for the hills once she finds out his true mission--kill the terrorists, not arrest them. Will they be able to stop the terrorists before they spread a deadly virus AND be able to build a life together?
While the Sleeper Seals novels are stand-alone novels that can be read in any order, Maryann Jordan's novel is loosely linked to her other series. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat. It was a fast-paced, suspenseful romance. I loved that real life issues, such as PTSD and bioterrorism were discussed. I also LOVED that Viv wasn't a weak, whiny, clingy woman. She was strong, smart, and funny. The perfect couple! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
